Pundi X, the blockchain asset payment ecosystem, today revealed new features and support for its XWallet app, including Telegram chat, Crypto Gift, QTUM support in the virtual card, and overall improvements concerning user experience.
In this version, Pundi X has integrated XWallet with instant messaging app Telegram, allowing users to send and receive tokens while chatting with others. The supported tokens for this new feature include BTC, ETH, NPXS, BNB, XEM, and NPXSXEM.
“Since we launched the XWallet, many users have been introduced to various cryptocurrencies and use cases, allowing them to be more comfortable in owning and using digital assets. With these new features, we hope that XWallet users will find more ways to use their crypto assets through our app.”
– Zac Cheah, Co-Founder and CEO of Pundi X
The XWallet app, which has over 250,000 registered users worldwide, is part of Pundi X’s global payment ecosystem powered by the blockchain technology. XWallet users can transact with Pundi X’s partner merchants across 25 countries and pay for their services using a variety of supported cryptocurrencies offline such as BTC, ETH, BNB, KNC, KCS, QTUM, XEM and Pundi X’s own NPXS token.
Sending and receiving tokens from Telegram contacts
With this update, XWallet users will be able to use new features when they chat with others on Telegram. Among these features is the ability to send and receive tokens via Telegram, which they can then store in their XWallet app.
These tokens will be placed in a feature called ‘Crypto Gift’ which XWallet users can use to send to colleagues, friends, and family via Telegram without paying any fees. The Crypto Gift which is sent will contain a certain amount of crypto tokens taken from the sender’s XWallet account. When the receiver opens a Crypto Gift, the crypto tokens from it will be credited into receiver’s XWallet.
XWallet users are free to send crypto both in a private chat or a group chat. When sending cryptocurrency to the group chat, users can decide the number of people who are going to split the Crypto Gift. People who open your Crypto Gift will get randomly distributed tokens.
To receive Crypto Gift sent through Telegram contacts, users will need to activate the Telegram chat in XWallet and click to receive the Crypto Gift from there.
The Crypto Gift feature is now in beta version. Known issues include translation errors and incorrect exchange rate display occurs when switching the language options which will be fixed in the coming week.
